Dartmouth College has charged 64 students accused of cheating in a sports ethics class with violating the Ivy League school's honor code.

College officials confirmed the number of students charged but declined to comment further until the appeals process ends later this month. Professor Randall Balmer told the Valley News that most of the students involved have been suspended for a term.

Balmer, chairman of the religion department, said the class was originally created to help student athletes. The class involves handheld devices known as "clickers" that allow students to answer questions. Students are accused of either giving their clickers to classmates instead of attending class themselves or helping others cheat by using the clickers to submit answers on their behalf.
